Troquet on South [Boston, Leather District]

Sorry to say that we had not been to Troquet since they moved to South Street (something like 5 years ago?) We celebrated our niece’s graduation last night and re-discovered what we’d been missing. We opted for the 5 course tasting menu, and although the menu states the entire table must order the same menu (they also have a 7 course option), they graciously accomodated two pescatarians in our party by substituting the final savory course, a beautiful portion of Rohan duck breast, crispy skin but medium-rare flesh, with a lobster dish. Started off with an amuse of oyster topped with a generous portion of caviar, followed by a wonderfully smooth bluefish paté (I have yet to have a bad bluefish paté but this was easily the best I’ve had), then mussels, very tiny and tender, in an aromatic reduction with chorizo, and a perfectly al dente mushroom risotto. Following the duck/lobster course, a fine chocolate mousse accented with sea salt and cocoa nibs. I was the only one drinking wine with the meal, and they offered a pairing of very decent, though not terribly memorable selections. Quite reasonable at an average of $6 per half-glass pour. The pacing and portion sizes were perfect - we left sated but not stuffed. Very pleased to become requainted with Troquet - we’ll put them back in our rota.


That sounds like a perfect (and delicious!) celebratory dinner, thanks for the report!
